TO THE EDITORS OF THE WORLD 



This volume has been compiled with the purpose of showing facts relative to 
San Diego and the Panama-California Exposition, to be held in this city in the 
year 1915. The progress attained to date, together with likenesses and material 

data of individual citizens, influential in its achievement. A plea for fair play and 
the proper amount of publicity due a city, with the backbone to advance against all odds.

N THE FAR-REACHING, sloping Kills opposite the 

Karbor s mouth lies San Diego, the much sought; 
where from the vine- clad homes one can see out 
across the changing colors of the bay and far be- 
yond; where one can smell the salt from the sea and 
can hear the rolling of the surf at night. 

San Diego, is called- the "City of first things 
for into the waters of her harbor vessels came in 
those far back days when America had just begun. 
Before the days of the United Colonies, before Lexington or Bunker 
Hill, San Diego lived, — a little colony, a fort, a church, a byre 

and some fields of graih. 

Up the low river that winds among the produce farms the bells 
and bell tower of the old mission shll remain with here and there 
the ruihs of the shelter wall. These sad, torn relics of the golden 
past do always thrill the soul of man, ahd it is good that he should 
turn him from the beaten ways and dream. "For dreamers are the 
makers of great things. A flash out into the night leaps leagues 
of seas and cries to shore for help, which but for one man s dream 
had never come. Now wings of canvas beat the air and add the 
highways of the eagle to the human paths, and all because a 
dreamer dreamt. 

Here by this harbor of the "City of the Sun what dreams 
may come if one would rest upon the mountain tops awhile, per- 
chance to see again those high-ribbed argosies of Spain rock on the 
flowing tide, the brown-robed brothers schooling the tillers of the 
soil or kneeling with heads at prayer beneath those crumbling walls. 

To dream, and to awake and find the feet of time had tram- 
pled on the work our fathers did, but that his hands had built 
the hew and better things. 

Buildings tower skyward now where once stood huts of mud, 
and churches where once stood shrihes; here odors from the roses 
come wafted on the winter s air; here touches the present with the 
past; here blends the northern winter and tropic South; here desert 
winds are tempered by the the breezes from the sea. 

Here opportunity cries out; here wealth awaits and fortune 

smiles on all.

BY DAVID CHARLES COLLIER 

PRESIDENT PANAMA—CALIFORNIA EXPOSITION 

THERE will be two expositions on the Pacific Coast in 1915 — but I can say 
definitely that the unique and beautiful one will be at San Diego, "The Har- 
bor of the Sun." San Diego is building that exposition now, so that it will 
be ready on time. Much progress has been made. The Administration 
Building is finished and is occupied by officials and assistants, grappling from 
morning until night with the details of the vast project. The Memorial Arch is up, 
pointing to the entrance on Laurel Street. Huge nurseries, filled with millions of ferns, 
plants, vines and flowers, are growing in the park which is to be their home. Hun- 
dreds of workmen are busy in grading and construction work; they have laid out over a 
mile of roads and paths. Ten miles of water pipe have been laid. The abutment for 
a bridge across Cabrillo Canyon has been built. This bridge is to be 750 feet long and 
105 feet high; over it the visitors to the exposition will pass. In the side gullies of 
Cabrillo Canyon 3,000 palms were planted this year. These palms will assist in fur- 
nishing the tropical setting when they are needed by the landscape gardeners. A plan- 
tation of 100 acres on the north and east borders of the park has been converted into a 
forest of 50,000 growing trees, to serve as a background for the scenic features of the 
park. 

PLANS AND COST 

The exposition will procure many of its exhibits from the Great Southwest of the 
United States, from Mexico and from Central and South America. It is in these countries 
that the Spanish-Colonial architecture grew to its greatest beauty, and it is therefor 
proper that the exposition should have all of its architecture and ensembles of architect- 
ure and landscape in the beautiful "mission" style. The exposition will be a mission 
city of snowy white, set in a green California landscape, the most beautiful imaginable. 

Although California will have a state building ccsting not less than $500,000 to 
house California's exhibits, the other states of the Union and the foreign countries will 
be well represented. It is estimated that the exposition will have spent from $10,000,000 
to $12,000,000 before its gates open.

THE 



EXPOS ITI ON'S 



SCOPE 



The San Diego Exposition will be international in scope, educational in value, and 
human in interest. It is to be the unique exposition of the twentieth century. Its pro- 
jectors realize there has been a surfeit of "commercial" expositions in this country; they 
are determined to make this exposition different from any 
ever held. Hence it has been decided that exhibits must 
show a process rather than a "product." 

A striking feature of the exposition will be the 
portrayal of the history of man down the centuries. 
An effort w,l be made to secure the most complete 
archaeological exhibit of North and South 
America ever assembled. The thousands 
who come to San Diego will see that America 
itself offers so much in the way of 
history and romance to the tourist as 
to raise the question : "Why Go To 

£<gypt?

splendid plans will have been consumated; when new routes shall have been chartered 
for the trackless oceans and when the master minds of trade and commerce shall find 
it necessary to readjust the regulations that prevail today. The first port this side of the 
canal, San Diego seems to have been selected from the time of the creation as the ideal 
place to celebrate "The Wedding of the Oceans." San Diego invites the world to 
attend this celebration. 



OBJ ECTS 



OF 



THE 



EXPOS IT1 ON 



Besides serving as a jubilee over the completion of the Panama Canal, San Diego's 
exposition will accomplish many objects. It has already "put San Diego on the map." 
Millions of people now read daily about San Diego and her exposition. As a result of 
all this publicity, thousands of tourists have come to San Diego in the past two years, 
and many of these tourists have become residents and "Boosters" of San Diego. 

San Diego will become a large city by 1915. One has but to remember that Saint 
Louis increased its population 19 per cent in less than five years; Seattle gained 100,000 in- 
habitants and Portland sprang into position as one of the richest cities of the north-west. 




Graders at Work 










Millions of Ferns, Growing in one of the Exposition Hot Houses 

There is no confidence more staunch than has been exhibited by the people of San 
Diego since the proposal to hold an exposition in 1915. The suggestion has been a 
rallying point; politics and petty personal differences have been subordinated for 
the common good, and the effort, even at this early stage, has been an edu- 
cation. There has been more of unselfish devotion to the common welfare; 
more of brilliant achievement and more of courageous determination, than at 
any prior time in the city's history. Added to the subscriptions raised by the 
people of San Diego, the investment by neighboring counties, states and foreign 
exhibitors, there will be available a much larger sum than was requisite to make 
a splendid success of the Alaska- Yukon-Pacific Exposition, held in Seattle in 1909. 

Besides^ enlarging San Diego, the exposition will leave a lasting beauty mark 
on the city's 1400 acre park, named for Balboa, the discoverer of the Pacific 
Ocean. Many of the exposition buildings with their exhibits will be perman- 
ent and these will interest all who visit San Diego. The horticultural features 
will also remain and will make the park unrivalled anywhere in America.

I t_a ^y 



The exposition gates will open at the dawn of January 1, 1915; they will not close 
until the night of Decmber 31, 1915. San Diego's exposition will be the first in the his- 
tory of expositions to remain open twelve months in the year. In view of the fact that 

many of the exhibits 
will be out doors, 
this is an unexam- 
pled tribute to San 
Diego's climate. 

IT WILL BE 
A SUCCESS 

I The San Diego

exposition is going 
to prove a success. 
It is backed by men 
of national fame in 
the financial and in- 
dustrial world. It 
has the right setting: a park within a 
mile of the heart of the business district 
of the city and yet possessing an atmos- 
phere and environment of blue and 
green, purple and gold. The park 
overlooks a bay, rivaling in beauty that 
of Naples. The exposition has the right 
all year climate, for San Diego has the 
winters of Egypt and the summers of 
Alaska.

Where Buildings Will Tower Skyward 





Gov. Johnson at the Administration Building: — "The £eo£le of the country do not realize all that you have accomplished." 



In all western America there is no region where the pros- 
pect of progress and development is so propitious; where the 
opportunity to build and create is so general and where the day 
of fulfillment approaches so rapidly.
